Tom Hands

Hello, my name is Tom Hands and I’m a professional tennis player. I have been playing since I could hold a racket and the plan has always been to play on the tour. My passion is, and has always been, with tennis and plan to pursue this for as long as I can! I work hard and am committed to being the best that I can be!

Education & Rankings
  • I graduated with honors from Drake University in America with a degree in Environmental Science. This is another passion of mine!
  • I got my 1st ATP point in September and am currently ranked around 1700 in singles and 930 in doubles.

Playing experience

Tennis is such a complex game with so many different game styles and techniques. I have grown to love this, every player is unique and every shot is different. But it’s the feeling of the ball coming off the strings and flying just as you had intended for a winner, that is the drug that keeps me addicted to this brilliant game.
